Honeywell: New ‘installer-friendly’ sensors represent next evolution in motion detector technology

Friday, August 22, 2014

MELVILLE, N.Y.—Honeywell this week introduced the IS3000 and DT8000 Series of hardwired sensors—a portfolio of seven high-performance indoor motion detectors for virtually any installation, from the most basic residential to the most complex commercial application. The sensors combine superior performance with Honeywell’s exclusive Snap & Set installation technology, so the series provides outstanding premises protection while saving dealers time and money through faster, easier installs, the company said in an Aug. 18 news release. The series also integrates fully with Honeywell Total Connect Remote Services when used with VISTA control panels, providing dealers with the opportunity to earn additional RMR, the company said.

“These are the best performing indoor hardwired sensors we’ve ever built, with significant advancements that represent a real evolution in motion detection technology,” John Kovach, director, product management, Honeywell Security, said, in a prepared statement. “We’ve incorporated world-class mirror optics in select models that provide more accurate detection, enhanced anti-masking capabilities, more robust pet immunity, better high temperature performance and more. They provide the security professional with outstanding options for protecting any home or business.”  

The sensors also are “installer friendly,” the company said.

“We know that time is money, and our Snap & Set installation technology can save dealers both,” Kovach’s statement added. “From a warm-up period of less than a minute to features that reduce time on the ladder and make wiring and mounting a snap, everything has been designed to make installations faster and easier.”

With seven new models to choose from, the sensors suit the requirements of any indoor residential or commercial application, Honeywell said. All of the sensors have a sleek, modern look and are compatible with the industry’s leading security panels.
